Where can you visit this garden after the Show?

The garden has been relocated to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital as a permanent feature that is open to the public. It is positioned outside the entrance to the Children’s Mental Health building, which opened in spring 2022. It forms an integral part of the unique dedicated children’s and young people’s healthcare campus, with green spaces that connect a cluster of state-of-the-art facilities.

"Now installed at Alder Hey, the garden provides a haven for wellbeing and togetherness for all families and staff at the hospital. It will also be openly welcoming to the wider community, encouraging local residents to benefit from this unique garden and the foraging experience." - Fiona Ashcroft, CEO, Alder Hey Children’s Charity
